This test determines the resistance of the equipment to the effects of blowing sand and dust where carried by airmovement at moderate
speeds. The main adverse effects to be anticipated are penetration into cracks, crevices, bearings and joints, causing fouling and/or clogging of moving
parts, relays, filters, etc.; formation of electrically conductive bridges; action as nucleus for the collection of water vapor, including secondary effects
of possible corrosion; and pollution of fluids.
The tests in this section are “susceptibility” tests, meaning the units being tested are the “victims” of the environment.
Our facilities are available to coordinate with other sources to provide complete testing services.
